"I love this for travel. I simply throw it down where baby is going to sleep. But I don't like it for the crib since it is wider than a standard mattress and takes a while to put in place without lumps"
"I like the pump function - it makes bath time easier since one hand is being used to hold up the baby. It foams out of the bottle, but that makes it seem far too expensive given that it's mostly water"
"Thorough guide to what goes on developmentally and physically with your baby, with you, and with your health care provider. It helped me anticipate OBGYN questions and understand why I was undergoing certain tests and precautions."
"This is a page-a-day countdown to baby's due date. This isn't your typical data-dump (although it also has some of that), but I found it a more fun and less intimidating read to supplement my 'medical textbook' on pregnancy. It's also nice to have just a couple of paragraphs of light baby reading each evening before going to bed, and some days are quite humorous!"
"One of the first things my friends gave me when they found out I was expecting. Whenever I felt nauseous I would slip one of these out of my pocket and suck on it until it dissolved. It's just dried ginger, so no weird additives or things to make you feel bad about eating them.
I'll add that I really hate ginger, and these are chewy pieces of ginger, but they worked, so I was willing to put up with them."
"By the time I hit week 30 none of my pre-pregnancy blouses were long enough to cover my belly. Maternity clothes are expensive, but I felt ok investing in a couple of these high quality, dual function t-shirts for maternity and nursing. I love them!"
"While I really wanted one of the intense horse-shoe-shaped pillow, this one was much more affordable and, given that I'm so short, works really well since I can shape in into basically the same thing."
"As soon as I started to show, it was recommended to me that I pick up a pair of maternity Spanx for lower back support since I am very active in my day to day. It makes a huge difference for me since I am not used to carrying any weight on my front, and I feel myself walking a bit taller (I hadn't even realized that I started to hunch over a bit!). Not only am I more comfortable wearing them, but they also prevent smooth over any weird lumps that come from creative adaptations of pre-pregnancy clothing, making everything fit just a little bit better."
